  • (2023-02-13) Justin Cram: 110% CPU USAGE on a Chromebook Lenovo intel gen 12th cpu 16 gigs of RAM, 256 GB nvme. NOPE bad extension!
  • (2022-10-30) Nasir Afolabi Agbalaya: This is a real waste of data and time. Why is it still here? This extension should be deleted
  • (2022-10-19) Nadim Haque: Why is this still in the store? it doesnt even work
  • (2021-06-06) Maria Jose Baena: no funciona
  • (2021-05-25) M2ohamad: Uses WAY TO MUCH CPU in the BACKGROUND. For WEEKS, I was wondering why my Mac was blowing hot air and fans full speed for no particular reason. I finally traced the source to this Chrome App that I have running on Microsoft Edge browser. It was using up to 50% of my CPU power causing the system to heat up. The app is useful for sure but what is this? It shouldn't run in the background (at all) or to the degree that it causes the laptop / PC to try to cool down so much. Disabled it for now, fans have slowed down.

  • (2020-02-04) ed mix: показывает видео на веб-странице, на которой вы находитесь, и позволяет отправлять их в Chromecast. Расширение WebCast обнаруживает видеофайлы в формате .mp4, которые воспроизводятся на странице, и позволяет отправлять их на устройство ChromeCast. Всякий раз, когда расширение обнаруживает поддерживаемый видеофайл, воспроизводимый на странице, оно добавляет действие страницы в ваш омибокс, который позволяет воспроизводить видео на устройстве Chrome Cast. Эта версия плагина открывает видеофайл на внешнем веб-сайте, на котором есть видеоплеер с поддержкой ChromeCast.
